Neptune's angle gives us a rumination moon. Worries about one's status in the group are natural and primal. Unfortunately, these sorts of worries are not, generally speaking, performance enhancing. Better to focus on finding something to like in others. That sort of mindset usually sets off a very attractive set of behaviors.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Can love that's not put in motion really be love? Yes. What's happening is internal — thoughts and considerations, ideas and intentions all churning around in a stew of potential that could someday be turned into love as a verb.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Helping feels good to you, serving feels comfortable, assisting feels right. But if you don't feel good if you're not doing those things, this indicates a problem. Make sure you're taking turns, serving and being served.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can make a difference in someone's life just by talking about what you know and love. The passion you feel is tangible. Your giddiness is the rising tide that carries all ships.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It's not that you need to network or want to be more popular. Such things have little to do with your friendliness. You're genuinely curious about people, and they will return the interest today.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When what you're selling makes sense to people, and they happen to also want it very badly, the sale is merely a transaction: You provide it; they buy it, no show, no influence, no convincing involved.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don't let anyone waste your time with catastrophizing a noncatastrophe. Unless there's actually a tornado involved, the best approach is being calm and reasonable with the intent to enjoy, help or improve.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Not everything you do takes energy. Some things give energy. With the right sort of tasks on the list, you can schedule yourself densely and be massively productive, gaining vitality as you go.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Navigating values can be tricky. It helps to have an organizing principle to keep you aligned. This question serves well: What would happen if everyone were doing it the way you're doing it?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Other people's preferences matter, but how much? That is the question of the day. You'll think about your loved ones when you're not together, though you'll resist or deny their ability to control from a distance.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Stay playful. Keep everything loose, creative and flowing in a productive direction. If you feel yourself getting too serious, then leave the scene for a few minutes to do something as close to fun as you can find.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). That person who can subtly and consistently nudge you in the right direction is invaluable in your life. A few degrees off of the trajectory, over time, totally changes the journey and drastically alters the destination.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If it's been a long while and you're still not achieving your goal, consider that it might be the wrong aim. Get out into the world with the intent of finding something new to want. Better to wander than to go stale.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 6). This solar journey emphasizes self-expression and you'll share yourself in different mediums, genres, colors and tones. One of your many gifts will be communicating with hard-to-reach people. Your willingness to bridge gaps will also grow your influence. There's a financial element to this you'll love. Sagittarius and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 22, 28, 16 and 30.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "I'm a Sagittarius, and my co-workers don't like me. I've learned this because I read an email that was accidentally forwarded to me that included some snarky comments about me. When I confronted the sender of the email, my boss called a meeting of a few of the people involved. They apologized, I accepted, but I'm seriously thinking about trying to find another job. I gather they think I'm pushy, bossy, selfish and loud. I think they are just intimidated because I have ideas and am not afraid to make things happen. What do you think?"
In many settings, your fire sign boldness and passion are an advantage, but your ability to work in a group is also an essential part of your package, professional and otherwise. So before you start applying elsewhere, see if you can't take this upset as a challenge to gain some political savvy. Regardless of your co-worker's motives, or how off-base they may be, this is the perfect excuse to work on interpersonal skills that will serve you well beyond this situation. Start with some soul-searching. Is there a grain of truth here — a behavior you can adopt or one you might curb? If you can turn this scene around, then you'll be invincible!
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Last year heaven gained the starlight of Rip Torn, who was among the most versatile and respected actors of his generation. The Aquarius actor gave a wide range and deep soul to the characters he embodied. A consummate professional, Torn was known to do what it took to get the shot, even if it meant performing with broken bones or kidney stones, to uphold the golden rule of entertainment, "The show must go on."
